Pilates: A Great Physical Therapy Alternative For Injury Rehabilitation
The benefits of Physical Therapy and Pilates are barred none. At Pilates MN we start with this standard and keep the bar high with excellent training of all our trainers and PTA’s. We look at the patient/client globally as a whole person. We value body, mind, and spirit as well as the community.

Client of the Month: Lori Wormald
Why do you love Pilates?
I love Pilates for so many reasons. I discovered Pilates after having two slipped discs in my neck and Pilates helped me to recover from this and to avoid surgery! After that, I was hooked and have been doing Pilates for about eight years. When I do Pilates I feel like I'm being kind to my body and I also find it extremely relaxing for my mind!

Favorite Movie:
This is going to really show my age but I think my all-time favorite movie is 'The Way We Were' with Robert Redford and Barbara Streisand. I just watched it (again) a couple of months ago. I think the movie captures the time of life so well and it also reminds me of what it feels like to be young and full of opinions and dreams. And Redford and Streisand are so beautiful in the film!

Favorite Book:
I just finished a book called 'The Salt Path' by Rayor Winn. It's a true story about a couple who walk the South West Coast Path in England (that's the area of Devon and Cornwall - where the country juts out at the bottom and Land's End is the final point). I think it's one of the best books I've ever read - especially for where I am in my life (having a significant birthday this summer)! I recommend this book to everyone!

Favorite Song:

There's this thing in England called 'Desert Island Discs'.  It's on BBC Radio every Friday morning.  They interview a famous personality (could be a writer/actor/surgeon) about their lives and, throughout the interview, the interviewee identifies eight songs they will take with them onto a desert island.  One of my desert island discs is 'Lonely Looking Sky' by Neil Diamond.  I grew up with Neil Diamond being played in my house all the time - so his voice reminds me of my family. This shows my age as well!

What Brought you to Pilates MN?
I moved here five years ago from England.  I was a dedicated pilates person there and searched around the Twin Cities for the perfect studio. I found Pilates MN after about a year of searching and I absolutely love it! The feeling in the studio is so calm and happy - and the variety of classes is perfect. It is a wonderful, safe, holistic environment - exactly what I was looking for.  Thank you for all the wonderful hours!

New Konnectors at Pilates MN!
Our new one rope pulley system on the Reformer machines are called Konnectors, and that's really what they do: connect one side of your body to the other. This system will challenge more core activation, enhance all over body strength, and improve body balance. If you haven't been to the studio in a while, make sure to come in to try this new system! You can do all the same exercises as before and we will be able to add many more exercises with two additional straps!
Check out the videos linked below to get a glimpse of some of the exercises you can do with the Konnector system on the Reformer!
